Well, they could require companies to test their
ability to handle homeworking by having employees
work from home on some kind of rota system. This
would change traffic patterns quite a bit and that
could cause ISPs to initiate upgrades.

P.S. when I go to a web page today, the connection
originates from the proxy service in the office,
just like any working day. But there is now additional
traffic between my home broadband connection and
the VPN server at work. In other words, some portion
of our internal LAN traffic is now going across an
ISP network.
